Watch J.J. Abrams Answer Star Wars Questions from Jared Leto, George Lucas … – Vanity Fair
J.J. Abrams has always been known for his secretive ways. But now that he holds the keys that unlock the beloved Star Wars universe, his answers are more sought-after than ever.
So itâ€™s no wonder that most of the famous attendees at Vanity Fairâ€™s New Establishment Summitâ€”from Jared Leto to Lena Dunhamâ€”had burning questions for Abrams. And J.J. answered them! Well, some of them.
The subjects ranged from Lost to Cloverfield to J.J.â€™s hiring practices, but always came back to that galaxy far, far away. The pressure is on for Abrams. In a panel conversation with Appleâ€™s chief design officer, Jonathan Ive, and producer Brian Grazer, Abrams said, â€œNow that weâ€™re into October,â€ he said, â€œitâ€™s getting real. Itâ€™s nerve-racking, the notion of it. But whenever I get freaked out, I just look at the work everyone has done.â€ But no matter how high the pressure and how many questions people ask, Abrams wonâ€™t open his famous mystery box for just anyone. No, not even George Lucas.
